    The Joe & Pats vodka pie in SI... this pizza goodness is worth taking the ferry over.

          went to DiFara's for the very 1st time this wk and it was AMAZING!

          crisp, slightly charred, thin-crust, tangy tomatoey sauce - it's mere perfection in my book!, topped w/a flavorful blend of a mix of cheeses, pieces of freshly cut basil, and a bit greasy the way i like it.

          downside is..... the trek alllll the way out to Midwood, can get clausterphobic, need to overlook the lack of cleanliness, and even in off-hrs there was a quite a lengthy wait, but it's soooooo worth it!

          the old man from behind the counter, Dom, the owner, works on all his pizzas right behind the counter for all to see. i stood in awe as he paced himself one incredible pizza after another like clockwork. he truly is a master at his craft and each pizza really is like art - genius!

          i fear the day he retires. if only he could be cloned, so there could be more locations.
